...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
...Wiggo? Bradley Wiggins' share of the Sports Personality of the Year vote didn't quite match Mark Cavendish's when he won the award last but then Mark didn't have Olympic gold medal winners to compete with.
...as planned. In fact it probably couldn't have gone worse for them. Revenge, for that's what the Newsnight “investigation” they actually showed was.
...somewhere in the B.B.C. George Entwistle, director general of the B.B.C. waits for Peter Rippon programme editor who stopped the Newsnight broadcast into Jimmy Savile.
...as Ian Hislop brown noses the BBC? A shameless act of sucking up to the Corporation over it's role in Jimmy Savile's abuse of young girls by a man who is firmly entrenched in the establishment.
...from the 1980s. The comedian, like a lot of people, knew back then.
...League Cup game. I reluctantly tuned into BBC 5Live last night for the away trip to Carlisle in the League Cup, no sponsors here without some readies stumped up, it was the only option.

...even worse to watch. It was excruciating watching Great Britain - no Team GB here - being thwarted by their own success in the men's road race on the first full day of the Olympics. Not just because Mark Cavendish didn't have a chance to win.
...what happened there then. Keith Richards doesn't look right with bright white perfect gnashers. It's not rock and or roll.
...it should have been Sir Eric. A national disgrace that Eric Sykes who entertained the country through eight decades has died without such recognition.
...according to the 'experts'. The reaction from certain quarters to England hanging on for a draw in their Euro 2012 opener against a poor French team was quite predictable.
...feel good about themselves? Opening games of tournaments have become increasingly cagey affairs, teams scared of getting off to a bad start, leading to some dire football and said teams ending up on the wrong end of a bad start.
...Mr. Guitar. All those guitar players that came out of the coffee shops and clubs of Britain in the 50s and 60s in Britain pretty much have one thing in common Bert Weeden's 'Play In A Day' book.
...it didn't get in until half past three"...making it's post Grand National annual appearance again.
